A labrador has become the proud guardian of nine ducklings after their mother disappeared.

The 10-year-old dog named Fred took on the role as “dad” to the baby birds at Mountfitchet Castle, a tourist attraction near Stansted Airport in Essex.

Staff became worried when they noticed the ducklings waddling around without their mother, but have since become pals with Fred, who has been “babysitting them ever since.”

The adorable ducklings have even followed their new canine protector into the castle moat for a swim

A spokesman for Mountfitchet Castle told the Standard: “Fred, our resident dog, stepped up to the challenge when nine little ducklings became orphaned last Thursday.

“The ducklings' mum had disappeared and a member of staff found them waddling around the castle grounds alone.

“The team were very worried about the ducklings but Fred, a 10 year old Labrador, immediately took to them and has been babysitting ever since.
